The Tiger and the Moustache

Saikat Ahamed presents Suitable for ages 12+
31 October 2020 Main House Salisbury Playhouse
The Tiger


Saturday 31 October at 7.30pm


Born alongside a new nation, Hashi, the girl who always smiles, grew up surrounded by flying tigers. In The Tiger and the Moustache, Saikat Ahamed traces the journey of his mother as he slides in and out of time, from the agonies of Partition in 1947 up to the present day, boarding fishing boats on the Meghna River and rickshaws along the dusty roads of Dacca, telling the story of Bangladesh.

From East London to East Bengal, taking in Birmingham, Germany and Glasgow, this story of perseverance is woven together through storytelling, music, dance and a healthy amount of humour.


Running time approx. 75 mins
